Abortion’s Last Stand in the South: A Post-Roe Future Is Already Happening in Florida

An abortion clinic in Florida — A Woman’s Choice of Jacksonville — is already dealing with protestors who literally moved into their street. Laura C. Morel asks what will happen to this, and other clinics, poised to absorb a new influx of patients with the majority of the South getting ready to ban abortions. Who will safeguard these places and their patients?

Now, as the end of Roe appears imminent, abortion rights groups are predicting that acts of intimidation, harassment and violence will skyrocket. And they say providers and patients have precious few protections.

The Disinformation Campaign Behind a Top Pregnancy Website

The American Pregnancy Association is often cited by hospitals, government agencies, and major publications as a neutral source for reproductive health information. But, as Kiera Butler investigates, it’s far from it. Founded by anti-abortion activist Brad Imler, the APA website hawks products, is full of medically questionable advice, and is a “softer, user-friendly approach to anti-abortion activism.”
It’s not surprising that the loudest and most disruptive anti-abortion activists receive the most national attention – the protesters outside clinics, for instance, or the legislators narrowing the window within which a pregnant person can end a pregnancy. But there is a quieter and more intimate part of the movement, too – one that has the potential to profoundly affect countless individual lives. That is Imler’s specialty: the part that takes place on hotline phone calls, in crisis pregnancy center offices and in late-night Google searches.
